After debuting a genderless collection in Spring/Summer 2021, MM6 Maison Margiela is continuing to push convention aside with its Fall/Winter 2021 offering. Though the North Face collaboration isn’t returning, the sub-label is introducing another street-friendly joint effort, this time with Eastpak.
Described as “reverse mode” by the brand, this collection features a host of inverted apparel, worn inside-out, upside-down and sideways. Knitwear, shirts and dresses boast plenty of exposed seams, readjusted hems and head openings, plus the occasional portrait of Jean Sibelius, Maurice Ravel or Erik Satie, the latter of whom also partially informs the avant-garde soundtrack. Menswear and womenswear looks alike feature statement buttons and faux earrings of imitation pearl, granting contrasting notions of class to the upended tailoring, lab coats, denim layers and sweaters.
The Eastpak collaboration is similarly progressive, yielding five styles of Eastpak toteable in various hues. Each bag is entirely reversible and laden with scrappy patches bearing the name of each imprint.
Expect FW21 to arrive later this year via MM6 Maison Margiela’s website, global stores and stockists.
Meanwhile, mainline Maison Margiela introduced its latest round of tabi-toed Reebok Classic Leathers.
